Qiyadat Global - Georgetown
A Women's Leadership Program

Driven by our belief in the importance of empowering women, supporting them and developing their skills to be able to effectively manage and assume leadership positions in all sectors, government, private and non-profit, we inaugurate this program and this collaboration with the prestigious Georgetown University, which was founded about 250 years ago to prepare and educate leaders worldwide.

This is a Saudi-American collaboration that comes as an extension of the bilateral cooperation between the two countries over the past decades, in which we believe in the importance of building bridges and cooperation to achieve common goals.
